    Appreciate the write up! Looks like • "Trials Fusion: After The Incident" link is going to COD:AW. But there seems to be some general confusion surrounding this pack altogether?

    Does Chewie usually post the sales stuff? I read he's in Dubai this week which may explain the delay. Either it's been passed onto to someone else and it'll take them longer to write it up or there's the highly unlikely case that the role was given to...well no one and hence a page doesn't exist...but I'm sure someone is working on it in Chewie's absence.

    The Trials DLC hyperlink takes you to the Call of Duty DLC.

    The Trials DLC for the One does have its achievements live. It has for about a week. It has 250 Gamerscore like all the others.

    Rista B said:MC PHILABUSTA said:Where's the sales news???This.

    I keep thinking I missed it but I sure can't find it listed anywhere if it has been posted. The sales hub does seem to have a lot of the info covered but had to hunt up another article to find the link to the hub.
    We usually get all the sale prices into the Sales Hub soon after they are reduced. It is a manual process that takes a couple of hours most weeks. You can get to the Sales Hub from the Main Menu, under News - Xbox Sales. The Sales Hub also has prices for Canada and Germany! If you prefer an organised list I create one during the process and post it on my TA blog.

    Not sure where to put this but saw yesterday morning like 4:30am my time:
    Bioshock Infinite DLC Sale-
    -Season Pass: Reg. 19.99, Sale, 13.39
    -Burial At Sea Episode 1: Reg. 14.99, Sale. 10.04
    -Burial At Sea Episode 2: Reg. 14.99, Sale. 10.04
    If you don't have the DLC yet it might be worth a look.
    Life is a journey you take only once, it is best to start off on the right foot.

    I hope Evolve does poorly. I'm usually not a mean guy but they are putting more skins out than a Gears/COD game instead of actual additional content at extortional prices. That game should have been free considering...

    You don't have to have zen to win. As far as I've noticed, zen buys you extra stuff like a new race, mounts, bags, so forth and so on. Elder Scrolls Online will play the same way.
    To me, the game seems just like WoW

Some developpers are like that. The console came out just 2 years ago and they already giving up on the 360. The 360 started to blow up in 08-09, and it came out in 05. Smfh.
    Case Closed so don't debate it.

Smfh.While it got big in 07-09 (I preferred 07), correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe most developers stopped making games for the original Xbox by start 07. Looking at Xbox One release date, we probably will see the Xbox 360 releases die off this year.
